10:06 am
the control of the capitol city of ramadi. the pentagon said the air campaign does amount to more of the pin pricks with 456 total strikes and 228 of them in iraq and 168 in syria. but they are not defeating the enemy. >> iowa sis is advancing despite the air strikes and they are not nearly as effective as they can be. we have failed to put air ground controllers with the force on the ground that could guide those air strikes in the population centers. that is the issue unfolding. >> reporter: there is a growing sense of our coalition partners as we hear of this are unwilling to provide the ground troops or more support for the air campaign without a u.s.
10:07 am
leadership. they saw it in the failure to follow-through in libya and failure to follow-through with the redline drawn in the sand in syria and failure to keep the u.s. combat forces in iraq in 2011. they want to see an effort by the united states to demonstrate the commitment there. that will be the president's job when he meets with the 20 top military partners. >> they have a strong case to make to the presidentment >> president obama will wait until after the midterm to nominate a now attorney general to the staff. they are preparing for the prospect of getting that nominee confirmed in a lame duck session of congress. democrats want a delay for fears it would be a campaign issue. eric holder announced his

10:09 am
midterm and interest is down from other election and it is a depressing slew of issues and nothing for the democrats to fight the republicans against. you know, get in the car and say this is my issue and i will stop republicans in their tracks. it is the reverse for the republicans. they are much more energized. >> it seems to favor the republicans according to a wall street journal poll out last week. when asked about the midterm senate election specifically and the most interested voters responding. 51 percent are voting republican. and democrats have the numbers over all in the category but not the enthusiasm to get out and vote. >> low interest voters favor
10:10 am
democrats and high interest favor republicans by the big gap. and the other problem, for democrats, like i said, it is not, it is not, it would be unprecedented, john for them to turn out in great numbers. they have a generic ballot in 2010 and got wiped out. just because they have a lead going in it hasn't boded well for them in the past. it would be unprecedented for them to come out that are more male and older and white. >> they are walking on egg shells in the white house. how they are not even going to announce the name of the attorney general nominee until after the midterm election. add that to isis, slow economy recovery and jobless rate and there is not a lot of good news for the president and his party. >> even among his tepid
10:11 am
supporters they are not confident and they are afraid of this being a new norpal after six years of his presidency. there is no reason for them to be energized come november 4th. republicans have a goal, they want to take the senate back. democrats can't have obama in the districts or states. he's in hiding and only doing an event for the governor in connecticut right now. >> thank you. >> a lot of candidates talk about the second amendment right. but do they have an edge over the competition. hear what experts think. and a bus driver in charge after a frightening ride for dozens of children. and then north korea's dear leader showing his face again
